CommentPress Core

CommentPress Core allows fine-grained commenting in the margins of a text. Use it to annotate, workshop or debate a social text in a social context.

Other Notes

Upgrades from previous versions of "CommentPress" are possible. Please follow the following procedures for your context.

The name has been changed from "CommentPress" to "CommentPress Core" for two reasons: (a) because it serves as the basis for extending it for your purposes and (b) to safeguard historical installations, which could break if they upgrade. Newer "CommentPress" installations (versions 3.0.x - 3.3.x) can upgrade to the current version.
